? >> with congress deadlocked over fiscal cliff negotiations, little else is getting done. one piece of legislation that awaits action is a new farm bill. if it's not passed, the price of milk, which is now $3.54 a gallon, could double. another bill languishing in congress is the emergency funding for states ravaged by superstorm sandy. the senate passed 60.4 billion in aid yesterday, but the house has yet to act. nine weeks after sandy hit, the need for help is immense. >> this is my house, this was my dream, you know, this was the american dream. >> reporter: when hurricanes or floods threaten pedro's house in the past, somehow it always survived. but as sandy belted sta ten island two months ago, correa knew right away this storm was different. >> i looked out the window and seen my car, it was moving. i said wow the win must be really ripping, and i looked closer and it was floating. >> reporter: he had already vaked his wife and two children. he and his brother were trying to save the house. sandy gave them no chance. >> out of the corner of my eye i see my neighbor's house floating, and it cr

of the issues the parties said they were concerned about leading into the fiscal cliff. the payroll tax cut is going to expire. no one is talking about extending that. that is the one that gives the biggest bang for the buck. host: if a deal does get done, how much of the cliff aristo going to be staring at? guest: you are staring at one cliff, the payroll tax cut going away. that is 3% of every wage earner up to $100,000 or so. that will have a big economic impact. you are approaching the debt ceiling cliff which will be another standoff. i assume that is where we will get into the discussion of spending cuts that seems to be absent from whatever deal they are talking about. guest: if there is no deal, the full tax cuts go away. the tax increases and spending cuts will go into effect. about iran fiscal policy given the time. but something in between. maybe the minimum of $200 billion and the maximum of $600 billion. host: some statistics with several charts on how it affects you in your income bracket. the richest 20% with scene increase of about $20,000 increase in taxes owed. for those m
